must be the hat

okay hear me out: 

you know those photo series that are like “In The Running For The Next Spiderman/Young Han Solo/Bachelor/Prince Eric/Property Brother”

and it’s just like nine generically handsome brunet white men that might all be Henry Cavill or might all be Matt Bomer or might all be the photogenic runner guy from 2012 for all we know but it’s impossible to tell because they are just so generic?

and you know how nobody really remembers what Moist von Lipwig (slash Albert Spangler where applicable) actually looks like, they just remember the gold hat, or the glasses, or the bountiful ear hair?

what I want is an adaptation where Moist, whenever he’s being an anonymous face or The Man in the Golden Suit or Albert Spangler, is played by a series of generically handsome brunet white men who are swapped out shot-to-shot.

Carousel hairstyle for the Sims 4

To be honest, I was really convinced by the Toddler Stuff Pack… except for the cute curly hairstyle ! It has already been converted multiple time, but I wanted to make a less voluminious version of it, as we always need more curly hair options, so here is the result !

Available for teen to elder (male and female), hat compatible, base game compatible (it must be). In 19 base colors, as the dark brown one was a bit off, I edited it to make it darker, but kept the original one.

27/08/2017 : edited the hairstyle to make it available for female sims, and unallowed for random.

And if you like my creations, feel free to buy me a coffee (and a croissant if you can :D)

The other day, I wondered how the world of Harry Potter would be different if all students were sorted every year, rather than only in their first. So I wrote this.


Little is changed from Harry Potter’s first year at Hogwarts. Still he sits under that hat, thinking, not Slytherin; still the Hat considers his potential before sending him to Gryffindor. Still he is joined in Gryffindor by Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, still the Slytherin he so feared to be in will hold Draco Malfoy. Little is different about the placement of the older students, for all the Sorting Ceremony is made longer, and the Hat’s song a little changed, with their participation. Fred and George Weasley, like their younger brother, are still in Gryffindor. Ambitious Percy Weasley may be in Slytherin by now, maybe not yet, but he is a Prefect regardless. Oliver Wood or someone like him will still be Harry’s first Quidditch Captain.

In Harry’s second year, he and Ron are in more trouble than ever for missing the Sorting Ceremony. Now the Hat must be got out again to Sort these two boys who have caused such a stir, to confirm what surprises no one: both will remain in Gryffindor this year. (This time, Harry is once again thinking his wishes to the Hat, but instead of not Slytherin, he is pleading, Gryffindor, Gryffindor – picturing the warm Gryffindor common room that is the first home he has ever known, the first place that has welcomed him rather than shut him away. The hat, once again, obeys his wishes.) Both boys are relieved to find their House much the same as they left it; Hermione Granger is in their midst again, joined by Ron’s shy little sister Ginny.

Neville Longbottom, who had been plagued throughout his first year in Gryffindor by doubt as to his right to be there, is with them again, too. They missed his silent drama at the Ceremony, too, as the boy sat under the Hat that could see into his mind and reflected on the end of term. He had remembered standing up to the three classmates he thought he could call his friends, only to be left behind – hexed, as he so often was, ridiculed. More proof that he did not belong in the brave House. But he remembered, too, Dumbledore’s voice at the end-of-year feast – praising him for doing what was hard. He remembered being awarded House points for this simple act, and with the meagre sum, winning Gryffindor the House Cup. That heady feeling of being, for just one moment, a celebrated hero – that was like nothing else. That was worth a year and more of self-doubt. So Neville now unpacked his bags in the Gryffindor dormitories again, and, like Harry, he felt for the first time that he was home.

Harry has grown complacent, all his friends staying with him from his first year to his second. He hears the warnings of the older students on his Quidditch team (some of whom go from one House’s team to the next from year to year), the reminders that he will need to make new friends soon, but he does not really believe them. He cannot imagine his world changing even more than it has.

This is why he feels as though his stomach has dropped out of his body, as though he has fallen into some bottomless pit, when things change in his third year. He is still in Gryffindor, yes, and still with Ron, thank goodness for that, but Hermione Granger is no longer of their House. Hermione, who spent the last term of her second year as a statue, whose research was the only part of her that got to be a part of the battle in the Chamber of Secrets, who scrambled and sweated when she was unpetrified to pass all her courses in the remaining days of term – despite the promises of the administration that classes missed by the basilisk’s victims would not be held against their grades. Hermione, who had been called an “insufferable know-it-all” so many times that it had almost stopped hurting, who had felt so frustrated with the cavalier attitude her fellow Gryffindors took to classwork. She was now a Ravenclaw, the blue insignia on her robes matching that of Ginny Weasley, who seemed to have shrunk in on herself after the events of last term. (Ginny, like Harry in his first year, sat under the Hat in her second year thinking not Slytherin, not Slytherin, but then she had paused, and thought, not Gryffindor, too, because Riddle had possessed her despite her red-and-gold robes, and because she did not feel brave.)

Ginny, Hermione, and Luna Lovegood (here is one girl the Hat cannot imagine placing anywhere but Ravenclaw, though it will surprise itself in years to come) soon find each other in the Ravenclaw common room, and form an odd, but tight, bond over the first few weeks of term. Hermione finds that it is nice to have close friends who are girls; she never had this in her two years in Gryffindor. She still finds time to talk to Harry, to help him with an essay in the library or to keep him company on restless Hogsmeade weekends or to walk with him to Hagrid’s hut. They are still friends, and good ones; no disparity of House can change the bond forged in fighting a mountain troll together, and all they have been through together since.

She explains this, at last, to Ron Weasley in the days before Christmas vacation, when the dark looks he has been sending her all term finally come to a head in a shouting match outside the Divination tower. Ron, too quick to view matters in black and white, had seen her Ravenclaw badge as a betrayal, a defection. Had imagined that this was her choice, rather than the honest assessment of the Hat. Had felt left behind, discarded, second-rate, dismissed like his brothers’ hand-me-down robes that he wore. With Harry to remind him not to be an ass, to remind Hermione that Ron was always like this, they made up soon enough. Hermione laughed and called Ron an idiot, but fondly; and he laughed back, and told her that the blue and silver only made her look more the nerd. The trio were reunited, even if they were in different houses.

And, after that fight at least, perhaps the difference of house was a blessing in disguise. Crookshanks could not worry at Ron’s rat when they lived in different common rooms. There was no fight between Ron and Hermione about their pets; when Scabbers went missing, there was no talk of foul play, only an agreement between the three friends that they would try to find him. The three were still present in the Shrieking Shack, two Gryffindor children and one Ravenclaw, to bear witness to the true identity of Scabbers, to bear witness to the reunion of the three living Marauders. They still saved Buckbeak; they still lost Pettigrew.

Fun D&D Item ideas:

The Stick of Sturdidity: A totally impervious metalic 2 foot long rod. cant be damaged or transmuted in any way shape or form. No other special effects, magical or otherwise. Literally just a completely indestructible stick.

The Masked Mask: A Mysterious mask that, when worn, is impossible for other people to see. When worn, the wearer appears, instead, exactly as they were before the mask was equipped. When not equipped, the mask appears as a rather ostentatious fancy feathered and jeweled masquerade mask.

The Forget-Me-Knot: A necklace with a round stone pendant. when not directly addressing this amulet, it is immediately forgotten about. The wearer is not exempt from this effect.

The Staff of Substitution: This staff, emblazened with the sigil of Gordon the Cowardly, when activated, switches your position with a randomly selected person from literally anywhere in your current plane, the person can be anyone, from a king, to a peasant, another adventurer, an angry giant or even a child. It can be reactivated to switch the positions back, but will automatically reverse the switch after a time limit of 1 hour.

The Pen of Poor Reception: This magical pen is able to write in such a way as only yourself and one other intended recipient can read whatever is written. However, anyone else who reads from it, will instead read it as a very personal and needlessly vulgar series of mean insults, inflamitory comments and generally very unpleasant commentary.

The Timepiece of Reflection and Introspection: Appearing as a a jeweled pocket watch with mirror like polished metal, engraved with with images of hourglasses and the sun, this magical item accurately tells the time through magical means. In addition, when broken, will cause time to freeze, everywhere, for everyone, for the equivalent of 3 hours. In this time, no one can move, no one can use magic, no one can take any action, however, characters will be allowed to think during this time. After the time runs out, time starts again as per normal exactly as it was.

The Hat of Convienient Bird Purchasing: This tall flat topped hat hasthe ability to transform gold, into birds. The more gold placed into the hat, the more interesting the resulting bird will be (refer to the list below). The resulting bird will not be under the control of the buyer, will likely be startled to be pulled from a hat, and will react as a bird would in that situation.

1-9g: A small wodden chicken
10g: Sparrow
20g: Pidgeon/dove
30g: Duck/chicken
50g: Parrot
100g: A Bird of Prey (falcon, eagle, owl, etc)
200g: Flamingo/Peacock
500g: Cassowary, Emu, Ostritch
1000g: Medium or smaller dinosaur or monsterous bird.
2000g: A Large or larger dinosaur or monsterous bird.
10000g: Huitzil, Lord of all avian, Ruler of the 9 skies. The Bird King.
(Note: Specific birds can be summoned, but an appropriate amount of gold must still be given to the hat. If a bird you wish to summon is not on the list, pay an equivalent amount of gold as decided by your dm.)

Superior Boots: These tall red leather boots have no beneficial effects on the wearer, but any other creature who views the boots will know their own shoes to appear drab and boring in comparison. The individual will not necessarily be compelled to want the Superior boots, but may if they value style highly and desire your boots for themselves.

The Net of Hair: This Large (approx 20 square foot) net seems to be made of long hair from an unknown creature. when tied down to the ground, anything contained within is considered a to be in a seperate area to the world around it when regarding the area of effect on spells, auras or environmental effects. If the Net is damaged in any way, this effect dissapears in one round.

The Token of C’fung Mif: This Monolithically Magical token takes any shape it’s user desires, once a shape has been assumed, the user can regail the token with a legend, tale, story, prophecy or forboding ill omen, which the token will then create a visual representation for, to be played when it is next picked up by another individual.The Token, after sharing this vision, will then fill the new users mind with a task, a direction, or a general sense of urgency as decided by the original user. Once parameters set by the original user have been fufilled, the token will become inert until recollected. When the original user collects the token again, it resets to it’s original form.

NHL!Bitty, Part XII -  ‘A Stanley Cup Wedding’

The Schooners win game seven and dethrone the defending champion Falconers to claim Seattle’s first national title. 

Eric was definitely not expecting Jack to propose immediately after losing.

(A rework of the ‘Game 7 PVD vs SEA’ prompt that totally retcons some NHL!Bitty stuff, so timeline-wise: the Falconers took the cup Eric’s second year with the Schooners. The Schooners win the following season.)

NHL!Bitty Masterpost




Game Seven. Third period. Eric’s running on adrenaline, blue Gatorade, and rage.

Jack and the rest of the Falconers first line are racing to catch up, but Eric is ‘criminally fast’ (thank you ESPN for the lovely descriptor), and it’s almost too easy to whip the puck to Carter and wait for the siren.

Snowy can’t stop it. The Schooners will win in regulation. 

For a brief, terrifying moment, Eric sees Morin’s breakaway as the death knell of his relationship. He has flashes of Freshman year and he thinks ‘Jack is going to hate me’.

Eric closes his eyes and waits.
